“Part courtroom thriller, part chronicle of Southern small-town life, brimming with humor and delivered through the eyes of whip-smart Scout Finch as she grows up seeing her father fight for what he believes is right, against all odds. Don't be fooled by your memories from high school English class, this book is a powerhouse.” — Gina at the Mobile Library Service
